New Book cover Art

Just a little update. This is a new cover I just did for a children's novel titled "The Sword of Darrow" I was asked to re-paint the cover as the 1st version was considered to scary for girls and yes I did the 1st cover.

Oil Painting "Dominator" a tribute painting in memory of Frank Frazetta

A while ago I created BW drawing titled "Dominator" . It was a tribute piece to the legend Frank Frazetta. I decided to create an Oil painting from the BW drawing. It took sometime to complete as I was doing freelance work but I finally got the opportunity to complete the painting so here it is. I really can't write enough about Frank Frazetta. What can be said that hasn't already been said? I guess for me it started at the age of 12 when my dad took me to a comic book shop and I purchased my first Frank Frazetta art book. From that point on my art was never the same. Though I have been inspired by other artist, Musicians etc my fantasy artist roots always will be inspired by Frazetta. He will truly be missed and I am so grateful and fortunate that I found his work many years ago. Rest in peace.

Quick environment painting

Once in awhile I get in the mood for some sci-fi and speed painting. I spent about 3-4 hours on this.
the title is : "The Enemy of my Enemy is my friend"
I've heard this somewhere and though it was fitting of this paining. I think we've seen so many concepts and films where aliens attack, it would be nice if they came to specifically protect us for a change. Perhaps Transformers is similar within that realm.
